Nominee images at Black and White Spider Awards 2014

[19th October, 2014] No winning image this year, but I am grateful having two nominee images in Wildlife Professional Category in Black and White Spider Awards 2014. This year 8,500 entries were received from 73 countries.
 
It is great with this high standard international contest focusing only on black and white photography.
 
One of the images shows an Arctic Fox in snowfall and evening light taken on Dovrefjell. Dovrefjell is one of my higly preferred places to go photographing, and since it is not far from where I live I have been on trips to the mountain area numerous times over the years. The other image shows a Polar Bear in mighty landscape taken on Svalbard on one of many trips with WildPhoto Travel. Thanks to Ole Jørgen Liodden and Roy Mangersnes at WildPhoto Travel for a great trip.
 
Please click on the image to enlarge and see them in 1400px quality. Feel free to leave your comments below if you like and do follow my work on Facebook as well.
 
Do also have a look at Black and White Spider Awards and get inspired!

Trodde det ble gull av alt du foretok deg? Sort/hvitt bilder er utrolig flott. Begge var outstanding i mine øyne.
